One Poem by Alun Robert

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Party Until Dawn

Christine, they’re looking at us.
Just three of them out there.
Where are the connoisseurs?
Where are the tourists?
After all it’s Saturday.

Little wonder you’re melancholy.
Should be me too. But
my chair is so relaxing
my cigar’s a Fonseca and
my tumbler’s half full.

Do try to look interested, Christine.
Stop gazing up the wall.
Don’t turn your back to them.
Tate Modern closes in an hour then
we can party until dawn.
